The demo shows the difference of strength between a traditional rope and a rope with Unicore technology.

The brunt of a rope’s strength comes from the core, and while the sheath doesn’t add significant strength, it does protect the core from damage. A sliced sheath will quickly unravel, exposing several feet of core, making the rope unusable. Solution? Beal introduced Unicore technology last year in two ropes; this bonds the core to the sheath via a thin, lightweight filament that’s woven between the two. That means if the sheath is cut from a sharp edge or bad fall, it will stay in place without exposing the core. This year they’re expanding the Unicore lineup, including adding it to the 10mm Tiger, which is an ideal rope for everything from toproping to big alpine ascents or walls where you’ll be jugging a lot. “Up high on the multi-pitchTiger Balm Arête (5.11 R) in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon, I was glad to have this rope as I ran it out farther and farther,” one tester said. “I had no worries of this thing cutting and exposing the core if I blew it.” Testers also lauded the rope’s handling—no kinks even when brand new—and said it belayed smoothly through both tube-style devices and a Grigri 2 . It comes standard with a dry-treated sheath, with an optional treatment that covers the core and the sheath. read the full review
As a “Goldilocks rope: not too stiff, not too flexible—just right,” this cord was a crowd-pleaser, earning compliments from belayers and climbers alike. This rope handled nicely, didn’t freeze up in dripping ice and snow, and held up to multiple crampon kicks. (Don’t worry, we checked the rope.) It also didn’t fuzz after multiple high-abrasion toprope attempts on rock (high points from testers for this). Bummer: the Tiger included a rope bag that quickly disintegrated—“good for selling ropes, bad for a rope bag.” read the full review

The Tiger has been a sport and trad climbers’ favorite for years, but the addition of Unicore means big wallers, alpinists, and even route developers can find peace of mind and extra durability in high-rockfall arenas. read the full review
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
